I would quibble that the early physical attack comes on without enough build up and I could do without some of the dialect in dialogue, but the whole thing was just too much fun to whine. A bonus for me was looking over the shoulder of a psychotherapist in action. It provided a novelistic version of HBO's "In Treatment" and was tightly woven into the storyline. A lot is left unresolved in this first book of the trilogy, but the good news is that book 2 is on the way.
So, even tho I can't fit it easily into a genre, I can tell you what it is anyway- a very good read, a real page turner. The characters are well drawn out, realistic and our protagonists are sympathetic but not super-powerful or anything like that.
Yes, there are a couple of the stumbles one would expect from a new author- a couple of side-plots and characters really go nowhere and distract. But my only real complaint is that there wasn't MORE! The book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger.
I rcvd a copy for review.
When Lara is attacked, a patient's life is in danger, and shared dreams bind people together, it's time to understand all those Jungian symbols and work out what "the collective" is trying to say. Lara's lover may not understand her skills, but he understands danger and the changing world; he knows how to keep the people he loves safe; and he loves Lara. But is he ready to help her find a psychic?
Backstory of a world without oil, spiraling dangerously out of control is well-timed, all too plausible, and naturally told in this scary paranormal suspense. The romance between Lara and Trevor is sweet, and their backstories come together too as more of the past is revealed. Add a mysterious house, the Mexican mafia, a wise cop, and ancient evil eager to see the extinction of life as we know it, and you'll see this novel's full of excitement and surprises.
The author's familiarity with psychology is reflected nicely in Lara's dealings with her patients. Occasionally heavy, but always fascinating, the analysis adds depth and history to Lara and Trevor's relationship. Meanwhile an energetic puppy and sensuous lovemaking add fun and a future. Local foods and beers add authenticity, and the whole is a nicely intriguing tale of Gaia, human folly, mythology, and hope.
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to win an ecopy of this novel after reading a lot about the series.
